Panda Sweet Tooth Full for iPhone

image

The Panda Sweet Tooth Full app is a fun game where you control a panda that goes through levels collecting different foods.  There are several different worlds where the panda needs to collect different types of foods beginning with strawberries.  Each world is broken up into several different levels.  If you’re able to complete a level successfully and collect enough of the food you’re looking for you’ll get three stars.  If you complete it without dying but miss too many items you’ll get two or one stars.

What I played this week - Draw the Line, InstaJam, Trailers, Ichi and Kitaru news!

image

Welcome to my somewhat weekly app review column (aka WIPTW), where I mostly review games and "play-oriented" apps and news. This week, have 3 apps to review (and another to preview), so won't waste any time with my usual blabbering. Draw the Line is a cute puzzler with physics aspects. Ichi is still under embargo, but can say it's another interesting puzzle game soon to be released. InstaJam is a basic drum machine app, and iTunes Movie Trailers though not a game, is an iTunes award-winning freebie vid player handy for finding all the latest movie previews. Last but certainly not least, I offer up a quick QA with some of the Aoineka folks about their coming Kitaru game, and you don't want to miss this iPhonelife exclusive about what could shape up to be one of the best iOS 3D gaming experiences ever!



Otterbox: A Tale Of Two Cases. Something Old, Something New...

If you are looking for a great protective case for your iPhone then Otterbox has got you covered! This company has been in the business of making cases that provide serious protection (for what is likely one of your more prized possessions) for years.



Tracks app review for iPhone

image

At first glance many people might think that Tracks is just another social media tool for their smart phone.  If, however, you give it a chance and launch this impressive app you’ll quickly see that it is much more than that.  To start with, this app was clearly developed by professionals who know not only how to program a mobile app but also how to make sure it looks and functions flawlessly. 

The app allows users to store and share all sorts of things with exactly who they want to.  This includes anything from music to documents to photos and videos.  You can use the easy to understand settings to make sure you’re only allowing your friends to see a specific item, or you can share it with everyone. 



Apple may announce iOS 6 June 11, including new maps, camera, and photo apps

Many are now expecting that Apple will announce iOS 6 during their June 11 keynote at the Worldwide Developers Conference. Rumors have been circulating that Apple will introduce a new Maps app -- one that will no longer use Google Maps. A rumored feature will be 3D maps. Details of the app and actual photos have been posted on the Internet. You can see a roundup of this on CNET. Also rumored is Facebook integration.

Video on Japanese site offers more evidence for 4-inch screen on iPhone 5

image

The iPhone 5 apparently won't be announced until September or October, but evidence continues to mount that suggests it will have a 4-inch display. Now a video has been posted on a Japanese website showing a front panel for the new iPhone and comparing it with that of a current iPhone. It gives you a clear picture of how much taller the new phone will be. Of course, we don't know if this is a legitimate front panel, and even if it is, we don't know whether Apple will come out with this form factor or some other one that they might be working on.



A Unique Touch: X-Doria iPad And iPhone Accessories.

image

In the ever-so-crowded field of cases and folios for iDevices it's an understatement to say that it can be a challenge for one brand to stand out from the crowd. To that end, X-Doria is a company that has created a unique and varied product line-up, products that appeal both to a sense of touch as well as a sense of visual aesthetics.



OtterBox presents new battle-ready Armor series case!

Here is a case that Hannibal would have lovingly embraced, and why not? You could potentially use it (with iPhone encased) as a small personal shield for say your sword hand, what with that steel latch fused to the bottom there. Ok, that might be a bit much, but it will protect your iPhone better than anything short of stuffing it into a bank vault. When out conquering Romans, you can't afford to have your iPhone get smashed on a rock, or crushed under a falling elephant, which will likely ruin your day! OtterBox has a serious Armor case coming for the serious conqueror (insert Police, Fire, Soldier, EMT, Construction worker, etc.)... All "proofs" apply (dust, drop, crush, water)--coming soon!



Everything iPhone - Apps, Accessories, Reviews, Wallpapers etc | iPhone Life Magazine

The iPhone has become a benchmark for all other smartphones to compete with.  Reviews on the cases, accessories, apps, wallpapers and more are located below.  Here are a couple of Articles that showcase what we have to offer.  For eaxample, iPhone 4S by Alex Cequea (iPhone Life Magazine Editor in Chief).

In that article, Alex says that the iPhone 4S has the exact same physical form factor as the iPhone 4. However, the insides are a whole different story, and Apple tried to make that very clear. The most notable improvements are the 8MP camera with 1080p video recording, the A5 dual-core processor (same as the iPad 2), and an improved battery life (8 hours of 3G talk time, 200 hours of standby). As far as the capabilities, the new Siri Assistant feature was the highlight of the show. The Siri Assistant recognizes natural language and can answer questions such as, "What's the temperature out today?" Combined with the phone's GPS, you can say something like, "Remind me to call my wife when I get to work." The Assistant will not only know who your "wife" is, it'll also know where "work" is and pop up a reminder to "call Marcy" when you get there."

Here's another great article, The Best iPhone 4 Cases. This article goes on to explain that like its iPhone predecessors, cases have become one of the most popular ways to accessorize your cell phone. Most cell phone consumers buy a case bundled with their new phone to protect it from day one. And who can blame them? Mobile devices have become hugely valuable and expensive items; you want to protect them the best way you can. There are literally hundreds of cases on the market. Let's examine the different options available on the market to help you choose the one that's right for you.


What to know how to create your own app?  "The first step in creating an app is to understand what you want to create and how you will measure its success. Make sure the idea is well vetted and there is a solid business case behind it. There are roughly 600 new apps submitted to Apple each day—what is going to differentiate your app from the thousands that are already available and being launched each week? Here are some questions you’ll want to ask when getting your app idea..."
